Robot Koch feat. Grace: People Are Strange [Video]


This takes me back. Way back. Back to the early to mid 90s, when as an early teen I was a camper at a little place called Camp Orkila. My counselor was an eccentric and short fellow, whose initials were E.L.F. and that’s what he went by. Each morning we woke up to “People Are Strange” by The Doors. I haven’t thought about it in years. Robot Koch gives the song a complete overhaul, treating the instrumental elements with various electronic loops and the vocals go to Grace. The result is an electro-trip-hop rendition of one of The Doors greatest achievements. Robot Koch dubs the genre a blend of hip-hop, ghettotech, and death metal. Sounds about right to me. The video is by Volker Heisterberg and Cornelia-Anca Paulnici, and was filmed live at Berlin’s Bar25 this past summer.
